A new federal report says New York ranked seventh in highway deaths in 2012.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there were more than 1,100 road deaths within the state that year.

More than 33,000 died nationally. That's a 3 percent increase from 2011, though New York State showed no increase.

Texas led the list with nearly 3,400 deaths.

California, Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia also ranked ahead of New York.

Vermont, Rhode Island and Alaska had the fewest highway deaths.
